Thought for the day

I was chatting with a friend today via Yahoo ..... he was telling me about frustration with life. He is getting irritated and angry all the time.

Then I remembered one saying someone told me a long long time ago.

"You cannot stop the bird from flying above you BUT you can stop the bird from building a nest on top of your head"

Life is like that .... it is not always a bed of roses .... we get bullied, pushed around. People might hurt us or backstab us. Everything might going wrong. But in the end we alone decide our own reaction to whatever come our way. We cannot stop others from doing what they want to us or the situations from going all wrong but there is one thing we can control ... that is ourselves and how we CHOOSE to react to that situation or that person.

You are right.

Carcar once shared, "Don't let someone become a priority in your life, when you are just an option in their life."

It is so true.

That's quite true. No point getting so bitter about life. Instead we should try to make the best out of it.
